Aside from being part of the top-rated morning series Be My Lady, Erich Gonzales admitted she considers it another big blessing to be the first celebrity endorser of Choobi Choobi restaurant which first opened in Cebu city. "All glory to God. Siyempre happy ako sa lahat ng blessings na dumarating. Sa show naman lahat kami mas inspired magkuwento kasi alam namin na talagang inaabangan nila yung sunod na mangyayari sa kuwento,” she shared during her Choobi Choobi Lingaw Lingaw Kaon restaurant presscon held last Februray 29 at Panay Avenue in Quezon City.
The Be My Lady star shared that the show has a lot of interesting turns for its viewers. "Naku medyo mahaba habang proseso pa itong si Pinang at si Phil kasi bilang dalagang Filipina dapat pinaghihirapan talaga yung kanyang matamis na oo and more than the love story nila, siguro inaabangan din yung kuwento ng Crisostomo family, kung paano sila sa araw araw yung mga challenges nila. Kung paano sila nag-se-stay positive yung outlook nila in life kahit na may mga pasulpot sulpot na paghihirap, ganyan. Ganun naman tayong mga Pilipino di ba? Kahit na gaano kahirap pa yan basta sama sama tayo makakaya natin yan siyempre kasama ang gabay ng Diyos,” she explained.
After she started dating Be My Lady co-star Daniel Matsunaga last year, Erich said working with him almost everyday on their soap has been good. "Ganun pa rin, mas nakikilala pa namin yung isa’t isa, mas marami kaming time together kasi sa trabaho yung location namin sa Pampanga tapos three times a week yung work namin. Kami sa buong cast, lahat ng tao sa Be My Lady masaya at ang gaan kasama lahat. Yung aura namin dun very positive. Lahat masayang nagtratrabaho. Kung may na-discover man kami na bago siguro patuloy lang naming na-di-discover sa isa’t isa na we love each other (laughs),” she shared.
Erich said so far their relationship on and off cam has been smooth sailing. "So far so good. Thank you Lord okay naman yung relationship namin at yung working relationship din namin kasama yung ibang cast. So yun yung importante di ba?"
The 25-year-old kapamilya actress said she already spent time with Daniel’s family during the holidays. "That was last year for Christmas. Nag-out of town kami kasama yung family niya and na-meet din niya yung family ko. Masaya. If you put God in the center of your relationship I think magiging okay talaga yung takbo,” she shared.
Erich said she and Daniel are in no hurry to think about marriage for now. "Wala, matagal pa po yan. Pareho kaming may mga pangarap pa na gustong matupad. May mga goals din kami in life individually and siyempre gusto din naman namin mag-grow. Hindi naman kami love team talaga. Siguro nagkataon lang na yung trabaho namin together as a couple pero siyempre gusto rin namin na mas marami pang mangyari like mga roles na magawa when it comes to movies and iba pang mga projects, ganyan,” she added.
For the coming year, the new Choobi Choobi restaurant endorser revealed there is a movie offer for both of them but it has yet to be confirmed.
After their trip to Bali, Indonesia last year, Erich said she hopes to see more of the world with her Brapanese boyfriend. "Napag-usapan namin na gusto namin maka-visit sa Alaska and of course, Brazil. Lahat lahat, travel the world ba! (laughs),” she admitted.
Whenever they go out on dates now, Erich said they try to make the most of it because of their busy schedules. “We eat pretty much anything. Everything basta more than the food it’s really the company naman yun. Kaya when it comes sa mga restaurants you look forward to bonding also yung usapan,” she said.
